Amazon Prime Video returns with one of its biggest shows, The Boys Season 3 on June 3, 2022. We got the first teaser for the third season alongside the official release date announcement. While the 45-second teaser doesn’t reveal much about the plot, it does provide some insight into Homelander.
The Boys Season 3 trailer shows Starlight and Homelander reunited at Vought International Headquarters for a press conference.
We’ve already had some clues about Vought and his invented drug Compound-x, where Stormfront tells Homelander that she’s Compound V’s first hit subject and the widow of founder Frederick Vought, wanting him to lead superpowered people to world domination.
Showrunner Eric Kripke has revealed that Season 3 of The Boys will reveal the history of Vought International. According to Eric, it would be interesting to see what Vought looked like in the 60s, 70s and 80s.
While Season 3 of The Boys will focus more on Vought International, fans will also see the first Solider Boy superhero Jensen Ackles. Jensen Ackles is arguably the biggest addition to The Boys 3 cast list.
Eric Kripke describes the character as “the very first superhero, he will bring so much humor, pathos and danger to the role. I can’t wait to be on set with him again and bring some supernatural at The Boys.”
“Jensen Ackles explained that he was playing the role of Soldier Boy, who fought in World War II and became ‘the first super celebrity and a mainstay of American culture for decades,'” he added.
He also said that The Soldier Boy had a surprising connection to Stormfront. The first official image looks like a messy version of Ackles, with shorter hair and beard. He is also in full costume and you can even see his shield.
The three new Supes in town: Sean Patrick Flannery, Nick Wechsler and Miles Gaston Villanueva will play Gunpowder, Blue Hawk and Supersonic respectively. Laurie Holden from The Walking Dead will play Crimson Countess.
The Boys Season 3 will bring back main characters Billy Butcher, Hughie Campbell and Starlight who will be played by Karl Urban, Antony Starr, Jack Quaid and Erin Moriarty respectively. Other actors to reprise their roles in The Boys Season 3 include Chace Crawford (The Deep), Dominique Mc Elligott (Queen Maeve), Laz Alonso (Mother’s Milk), Jessie T Usher (A-Train), Karen Fukuhara (Kimiko) and Tomer Kapon (French).
Additionally, Amazon is developing a spin-off of its superhero show The Boys. According to THR, like the parent show, the spin-off is expected to be a very TV-MA series. The untitled spin-off, written by The Boys executive producer Craig Rosenberg, is set in America’s only college exclusively for young superheroes – which is run by sleazy company Vought International.
The Boys Season 3 is set to release on June 3, 2022. If you missed The Boys Seasons 1 and 2, you can watch them now on Prime Video.
